president and the congress together collectively and also individually essentially abdicated their leadership on the budget. i don't know why anybody would necessarily expect that to change over the next two or three days so the best you could hope for is a little bit of kicking the can down the road a little further, abdication. there is no indication there's any movement on a deal yet. the president is coming back into town with hopes of changing that dynamic, but we still haven't seen anything that resembles an agreement. by the way, once they reach something, they've still got to sell this to the individual members of congress, not just on the senate side but also these house republicans who have shown a willingness to sometimes take things to the very edge. >> mr. boehner was not able to pass through or bring to the floor his proposal on plan b which would have allowed tax rates to stay where they were except on the million dollar plus earners. is his speakership in the balance here in any sense? >> in some ways, not bringing stuff to the floor is actually better for him with

'95, hardly anything got done. we did get the budgets out on time. >> right. >> i mean, that's the only year we didn't get the budgets out on time. and so there were two government shutdowns. then public opinion shifted strongly against that. the leaders of your caucus and congress decided i'd probably win in '96, and we started working together because the shutdowns were an action-forcing event. this time,
